Charles Bronson, Liv Ullman, James Mason, and the gorgeous Jill Ireland star in this action packed movie about a ruthless drug runner who holds a man's family hostage. A great film for Charles Bronson fans.

Is it just me or does this film have the longest and slowest car-chase ever recorded on film....overall I enjoyed it but hey I'm a Bronson fan

Mason is the least of it.
I've read that James Mason woudl take almost any role offered to him. "Cold Sweat" certainly supports that notion. Next time a British person pokes fun at an American's attempt at an english accent, you can return the favor by showing them Mason's attempt at "southern drawl".
But this is a film with misfires all over. Very uninteresting staging and lighting, poor editing, lame performances from most of the actors and a generally uninteresting plot.

very spine chilling and just the right suspence to keep you interested. A must see movie.

Typical and Fairly Enjoyable
Watching Charles Bronson go through his surprise measured moves to overcome all who would defeat him is predictable. What is funny is hearing James Mason do a southern accent, and watch Jill Ireland (who in real life married Bronson) play a hippie. It is hard to fathom Liv Ulman playing Bronson's wife. Interesting casting. Worth viewing just to get a feel how Bronson became a worldwide superstar in the '70's.
